1. Mastered to CDR by Steve Martin: "I transfered Dicks reel on a revox A77 onto a Sony F2 PCM unit. My Beta Pcm I transfered to CD-R directly Using Cardas cables." Hiss predominant through first 28 seconds of d1t1 then improves considerably.
2. flaws noted by mvernon
d1t2 - drop out ~2:44 - 2:47
d1t3 ~ initial vocals extremely weak, barely audible
spectral analysis shows almost no frequencies higher than ~5khz, imparting a distant, slightly "tunnel" sound. Nevertheless, it is quite listenable.
3. Vol. 1 of the Taper's Compendium lists a "Schoolgirl" as the first number along with a Bill Graham introduction. At this time these are no longer associated with this date.
4. Deadlists has the following comments:
The first two bars of Dark Star are clipped. In the first verse, Jerry sings: "Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes. Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis." And then, instead of "Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion" he sings: "Glass hand dissolving... recedes in the nights of goodbye". He realizes he's out in no man's land as he sort of trails off a bit while singing "goodbye". The next verse is: "Shall we go, you and I while we can, Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?" He sings "transitive NIGHT fall of diamonds" as if expecting Phil to hit the high harmonies, but realizing as soon as he sings "night" that no one's coming to the rescue.
